Jessie J undergoes operation: 'I may go AWOL for a minute'

Jessie J had a mystery operation earlier this week.

The singer took to Instagram today (June 23) to state that she went under the knife on Monday (June 22).

In a lengthy post, the Brit said that she wanted to keep her fans updated on the news, but declined to say what the surgery was for.

Jessie J said: "I'm going to be offline for a few days and I wanted to show you why. I don't often share personal stuff (especially about my health) anymore, I just get on with it secretly. 

"But I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse."

The singer - who has had a heart condition since her youth - confirmed that she is doing "okay", adding:

"Sleep - rest  - maybe some pie and mash, but mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better | and for the record it's not my heart or my voice | my heart and voice are FINE.

"I want to take a moment to send a virtual hug and kiss out to anyone in pain or suffering at the moment. In hospital or at home.

"There is always someone worse off than us and in moments like this I pray for you all. Hospitals have been my secret second home my whole life and they never get nice to be in. But they can inspire a great song [sic]."
